8:06 am
are about five tips, that we need to go through, and let's run through them and kind of give them the inside. first is be patient. >> absolutely, you have 24 hours to enter the lottery. it will start at 12:01, monday which is sunday going in to monday. it will end at 11:59 p.m. you have all day long. so, choose your time to enter, and just be patient. >> you have to be patient, you have to take your time but you also have to know you're continuery. you have to go into this with a plan, correct. >> yes, that is tip number two. know before you enter. you will have a choice of three stations, so if you are on say the trenton line, you are going to be able to decide if you get on at croyden or if you will get at cornwells heights you can make those deis as head of time. the here's an extra tip, we will can you if you want to get on between 5:30 and 8:30 or 8:30 or noon or either time
8:07 am
goodies for you. if you pick either time you have a better chance of binge the lottery good fair enough. after you go through all thaw need your confirmation so hold on to that. >> absolutely. number three would be that you are going to receive, right on the screen, after you have been in a lottery a confirmation that you have, your entry has been submitted. maybe a few hours later you will get an e-mail. don't be concerned if you don't get that e-mail right away. sometime late their day you will get an e-mail confirming your lottery entry has been accepted. >> and then one of the tips is you can only enter the lottery once. >> that is what we suggest. we are going to have the consultant that we're working with ticketleap, threw all of the entries and they will remove duplications, they will remove things that look suspicious or fraudulent. you risk having your entry voided if you enter more than once. we suggest just enter one time, with your one address.
8:08 am
>> we will kind of double down on the be patient but just take your time, relax, take a deep breath, take your time going through this. >> yes, because we have expanded the infrastructure, we now have the ability to accept even more entries, so we won't have to take down a system down like we may have the first time. but it may be slow. the the important thing is that you have all day long. you can keep entering fit is slow or just come back later, be patient. we have to wrap but one chance to make everybody comfortable, it is in fact going to work this time, you're confident. >> we are confident, not only are we working with ticketleap. that is what they do. they sell tickets on line. but, we also are working with our am on services, the the actual cities hosted by amazon. we have done everything we can. we don't want it to have a problem a second time so we feel very, very confident. >> jerry williams, we appreciate you being so accessible and sharing

8:11 am
8:12 am
welcome back. we are coming up at 8:13. can't find a parking space underneath all of the trees
8:13 am
because there are so few spaces, you cannot find them. working in this city can be a nightmare. now is there an app for. that this new app will be launching in philadelphia this week and people behind it says you don't to have worry about meters or crowded lots anymore. how will that happen? our sabina kuriakose has been checking out this app. how does it work? >> reporter: okay. well, it is called lucks, it is rally with it parking app, seems easy enough. let me pull it on my phone. i just down loaded it a few moments ago. so basically you down load the app, free to down load and drop a pin where you are and set a spot to meet. we have video for from you that app coming up. you set a time and place to hand off the car, owe somebody in a powder white suit will come get your car. the question is how comfortable do you feel handing your car off to a total stranger? well, lux, the company that manufacturers this app say they do criminal background
8:14 am
checks and they check the sex offend are registry and they do all kind of stuff to make sure you you are comfortable with the person who is taking over this app. so basically they will take the car, take it to a designated lot in the city. they have contracts with the city at these different lots around here. they will put it in the lot for a heart time and then when you call them to come back and hand over the the keys you make it a spot where they hand keys off they will hand you the car back over to you. now, of course, you want to be sure that the car that you have insurance on car, right. they will only take the the car for you you if you are 18, you are on insurance in the car. you cannot already tell i read terms and services, before we went on the air today. the company has one million-dollar insurance on each of the cars, okay. so, they say that they are insured. if any damage happens you should be covered but it is one of those apps where you use it at your own risk. you want to be careful when you actually use it.
8:15 am
make sure you know ins and outs. let's go to the big thing here, pricing, right. they have a base price of $5 per hour. sound okay, right. $15 max per day, but guys, that is base pricing. so they do have peak hours, kind of like another driving app we know. so we want to make sure when you are calling, on these valet drivers that you know how much you are actually going to be paying. i looked it up, in the other cities they operate in a half dozen other cities right now. in manhattan maximum is $30 per day, boston is about $25. i was just looking at these lots over here, this guy, who was working at this lot over here at second street was telling me he pays $24 for about a full day at this lot. so you really want to do the math here. is it worth it, $25 to park your car for one full day verse $5 off peak hours? we talk about these fun, cool
8:16 am
apps. it will help with parking because who wants to look for parking around the city. dowry search. try to figure out, how they feel about this? they are checking in for me. the company says they are working with the ppa to make sure they are in line with the regulations. when we find out we will let you know. back to you. >> that could be the lazy bill app. hand my keys over to somebody, hope the carries there when i come back. the let's check in and find out what is going on with weather. lets take a look at reading. really nice there. you see so many good things on our weather shots. dave, looks beautiful. how will it be. >> feels beautiful. it will be beautiful. there is a little more sunshine that we have throughout the day and that will help temperature climb quickly. cool in the surrounding suburbs but there is philadelphia, olde city, the airport, nothing on ultimate doppler. the temperature right now is at 75 degrees. that dew point is down though 58, very comfortable, ultimate doppler is all clear, we will zoom in here to gloucester
